This is less rigged and better regulated.
Charging is the current hangup for electric cars. Mainstream is addicted to the ability to drive any distance they want with one vehicle and be able to refuel in 10 minutes at any gas station of their choosing.
Give someone an electric car with a 1000 mile range and they'll complain about having to stop for 8 hours to recharge it in the middle of their 2000 mile roadtrip they totally plan on taking one day. Having to stop for 8 hours to rest after 16 hours of activity is totally unacceptable from a car.
First update will bring their newly patented One-Word checkout.
Just say the same of a movie, song, or product and it will automatically search and purchase it for you. No annoying keyworld like "ok google" required, the feature is always on and always parsing your conversations for products to purchase for you.
Second update brings predictive ordering. Fire TV will automatically purchase any and all products it thinks you may want, playing movies before you know you even want to watch.
Just stay away from Windows M, especially after the E service pack.
Luckily the concurrent release of windows 20.00 will give people another, more suitable option.
That doesn't make what he said untrue.
Prepare eBay One for immediate departure.
And change the combination on my luggage!
Plus, no ISP would want to drop their revenue. So expect a static "line maintenance" fee pretty close to what you already pay and a per gig rate that brings a normal user up the rest of the way.
Of course "normal" usage would be calculated by cutting out the extreme data users (as defined by people who use 100x or more the data as the lowest user, which would probably be an inactive connection or a restaurant that logs maybe 100meg a month running credit cards). Sure that would account for 90% of their customer base and make any statistician vomit, but that's irrelevant and should not be discussed by right of trade secret laws and DMCA takedown prenotices and you will be sued and thrown into liars prison so be scared and be quiet before you get labeled a terrorist for interfering with god given right to profit.
Yeah that last bit kinda ran away from me.
I really doubt a AAA with a 300 person team is going to purchase a game engine for a multi-million budget AAA title by going to a publicly accessible web store and queuing up 1 pro license + 299 team addon licenses and plunk down a credit card for that $151,000 bill.
Just guessing here, but the same sales team that processes their console licenses will probably give that AAA different licensing prices and terms for a huge order like that.
A watermark? I haven't built anything with unity but all I can find is as long as you make less than $100k/year you can build and release with free with just a required splash screen.
And even if unity suddenly does become an overpriced piece of junk, there's other game engines including a good number of GPL and MIT licensed free ones.
For the hypothetical 10 man team looking to break into the market with no money to spare for a big license, there are alternatives. And if they refuse to do without the extra pretty unreal rendering provides, then they probably lack the ability to compromise on other aspects of their vision and are pretty much doomed to fail.
Unreal's licensing scheme looks like nothing more than a way to squeeze some cash out of students looking to learn the engine before applying to a big company.
That and court small to mid sized studios that have the resources to actually utilize the unreal pretties, and hopefully score a popular enough release to afford a real license and cut down the royalties.
$15000 would get you a 28 person team license with unity pro.
It would also get you an infinite person team license with unity standard and $15000 in change.
Both save you the 5% royalty.
And you have yet to explain what financial risk epic games is bearing for you when you use the unreal engine.
Why are you so intent on making it look like unity is a horribly overpriced alternative?
I'm going to assume you're just an angry fanboy, because a paid shill would have better grammar.
$1500 gets you the pro version, or $75 a month. That's not thousands.
Android and iOS are another chunk of cash each but are not required unless you're targeting those pro features.
Of course you can use and release free if you don't need the pro features...
And what financial risk are they taking? If I make a game and it flops badly with no sales they are still ahead by my monthly subscription.
Parent is an illegal alien.
He has to be. He's advertising the fact he's a martian right in his name and no country on earth has laws to allow martians to immigrate.
The amount of time I spend at work keeping printers running suggests this is false.
So any other late 90's predictions of the future you would like to share?
Always wear your iGlove protective gear when taking your iPhone 7n out of your iPants pocket.
If an accident does occur you can treat small injuries with your iMedkit. More severe injuries you are contractually bound to seek service at your local iCare medical facility. There you can be assured prompt professional service from a certified Apple iDoc.
Small town in the middle of nowhere. When I was in highschool there were something like 75-100 students living 25+ miles out of town. The furthest out kids had 2-3hour bus rides (due to stops).
Combine with winter temperatures that sometimes strands normal buses by freezing the diesel fuel into a gelatinous blob, I sadly predict electric buses will never come to this chunk of the US.
Though I do hope electric buses take off in places that can utilize them. The bus barns that maintain a school's fleet would be wonderful sources of performance data. Info like that could help design better systems for all electric vehicles.
